So, how 'bout that moon, eh? Whether you saw it or not, bet you felt stuff happening. Anyone around you get a little unhappy with you or what was happening to them? Was there some complaining or nit-picking going on, more so than usual? Maybe you yourself felt a tad annoyed at something someone said or did not say, did or did not do. Were you perhaps a bit quicker on the draw?
If you–––or they–––or you and they fit the profile, don't worry. The moments we are poked-provoked are potentially huge aha moments to learn and grow, to practice magical thinking and be amazed. If we simply do the usual hokey-pokey blame 'n' shame, hurt 'n' blurt, and let's face it, it often is the go-to position, we're missing the treasure we could find. Treasure we own and could treasure, if we only know where it's buried and how to dig it.
What? Treasure in that stuff? Yes, I'm talking pure gold, comic and otherwise. And we can thank the Universe in the form of our own super important moon and sun, for helping us find that treasure. And transform our world in the process.
I didn't make this stuff up. It's what's for dinner these days, big time, as we all feel and adapt to intensifying frequencies in whatever way we choose. The frequencies are beaming to us and through us from all around, including our own sun and moon, solar system, galaxy, and intergalactic neighbors. Are you ready to feel more a part of all that? Well if you are, that's treasure to the billionth power. It's as much treasure as the number of neurons in our brains and the number of stars in the the whole shebang, which are the same.
These higher frequency bandwidths we're able to receive with practice you can think of as becoming a better radio. An old school analogy I know, but I bet you remember turning a radio dial and finding just the spot that clears the static and lets the music come in crystal clear. That's you, me, us. We're awesome radios, transmitters and receivers. And what those who know tell us about this multidimensional upgrade we're able to receive free right now, is, if you can clear your static and intentionally choose to receive, hold, and transmit the high frequencies, everything in your life changes, and you help everything around you at the same time.
While going for that from the description is a no-brainer, what hangs us up is the clearing the static part. To clear our personal static requires activating it all and while it's driving us crazy, perceive it for what it is, work with it in a new perspective, release and rethink our old paradigms and reactions, feel all the crazy and all the hurt and all the I can't take this shit anymoreness, and consciously let it transform. It takes courage and skill and persistence and then some. Because treasure.
The sun-moon-earth alignment really helped us activate all those button-pushing situations with a big dose of treasure hunter light. If you thought it would be/should be easier, or faster, or someone else could do it for you, or just one pass with a good intention or affirmation or look in the mirror should have 'fixed' all that, you probably feel disappointed with how your expectations aren't being met. If you blamed something or someone for that, well, that's not the high frequency zone you're aiming for. These may be habitual reactions which activated to give you an opportunity to work with them.
In fact, the high frequencies can't flow through you with that static, and you can't hold both frequencies at the same time. Pure metaphysics. Getting to know your parameters will help you tune yourself: attune, align, recalibrate––these are frequency descriptors and are used for our electromagnetic fields as well as electronic instruments. And letting go of stuff that irks you by really transforming your perception of what is actually happening is part of the process. As Jung said, the only way out is through. Notice we say we're going through a hard time, or going through the shit. The way to keep from perpetually finding yourself going through that stuff is to transform it through doing this inner work.
The way to transform your stuff while going through it has to do with awareness, with consciousness, with knowing who you are and what you are, and letting consciousness flow through you as you. Eckhart Tolle has a simple and very cool way to assess where you're coming from at any given moment that may help you here. He says that if you find yourself NOT in one or more of these three states of mind: acceptance, enjoyment, enthusiasm, then you are not in the high frequency zone, not in flow, not in presence, and can't receive or transmit that frequency, which would probably make whatever's happening feel and work out a whole lot better.
I think this is a really cool experiment to utilize. We often really get into our reasons for being pissed off, uptight, stressed-out, disappointed, and fed up with so-and-so or such-and-such. In that state we are actually getting off on the grrrrr in our heads and the heated emotional jangle. Unhappiness, discontent, we're lovin' it. We–––and I include myself because, well, you know–––get a little stuck there, in that static zone. That's why we often have to talk about it, complaining or venting to someone, or push back against the perceived source by arguing or fighting or otherwise trying to shoehorn another's actions instead of our own. How's that working for you? When we assess wisely, not that well. It makes us feel bad, derails wisdom thinking, and generally smears the yuck from the past event all through the present until we are sick and tired. And then we feel bad about that after that. We have created suffering for ourselves and possibly others, out of being unhappy about–––you guessed it ––suffering in ourselves or others. Echo echo...
The moon energy allowed us to see and feel where we reflexively project unhappiness outward, or fear it attacking our inner equilibrium. Fear is the underlying stuff that all less-than-high-frequency yuck is made of. Following our responses down into ourselves to uncover core fears for ultimate release and reprogramming is the work we each have the honor of doing now for the good of ourselves and our world, and hey let's go further, the good of All. Which–––when we grok it from the high frequency bleachers–––is One. Yay!
Shamanic work can assist with personal transformation for the soul's well-being. I should know: that's what it's said on my business card since the century began. Far from being me magically zapping all your yuck away with some smoke and feathers, crystals and power animals, it is one of many pathways to assist YOU in clearing your static and tuning yourself to treasure. And remembering how to treasure your treasure.
Serious word freak that I am, I'm going to wrap this up with some word fun. The word treasure has ease and sure in it, and winks at the word treat, which clearly comes from the same root. We LOVE the idea of treasure, making it both the noun and the verb. It's the good stuff on every level. You know you want it.
EASE is the watchword for these rapidly and marvelously changing times of frequency raising in the awakening human. Coming from states of acceptance, enjoyment, and enthusiasm we are receptive to the high flow, and that allows the very best stuff to happen, which then happens with seeming grace and ease. The word Erase adds an r to that ease.
So, my friends, Erase the rrrrrrrrr in any situation, which you and only you can do from within by switching to the acceptance, enjoyment, or enthusiasm channel, and you have just created ease: a true treasure you can treasure.
One thing that shamans and seers do is read signs. Always have, always will. Comes with the territory, we can't really help it, it just sort of happens. Throughout history and cultures you hear about the soothsayers reading the signs, doing cloud or bird auguries, scrying into pools and basins of water, and the gross reading the entrails of slaughtered animals method. Happily, I've never needed or wanted to do that one, but I'm a natural-born leaf, cloud and water gazer, and let's include the sounds as well, and add flames in a fireplace or fire circle to the mix. Augury is the verb; auguries are the messages you receive. I do bird auguries amongst others.
Like today, blue and green, perfect temps, with interesting breezes that arrest my attention to motion and the rustling sounds of the big maples and shimmering aspens here where I sit, entranced. It's no big deal, I'm not trying to do anything or get anything specific. That's the beauty of giving over to it without having an agenda. What comes in out of nowhere can be stunning in its simple eloquence. And by the sound of it, the breeze is getting happy with the attention, and a butterfly has just materialized to say hey, but I digress.
The thing about auguries is that they can be specifically ordered, as in a GOT type of 'go ask the oracle to do a bird augury and tell me if I will be victorious in battle' job. More often, these days, they are shamanic states of consciousness entrained by the light or wind or leaves or water themselves, commanding attention and shifting my awareness into a heightened state, what Michael Harner termed the shamanic state of consciousness.
Anyone can theoretically shift consciousness and perceive in a heightened state, and this of course happens all sorts of way. Augurers have often been said to have the gift, not learned but certainly developed through practice. It was cool to learn through both scholarly and metaphysical studies over decades that what I did naturally since I was a little kid entranced in the woods and ravines of Chicago suburban neighborhoods had a lineage back through time to those who read the portents of clouds and birds. I just knew I became different, felt different, and got info and pictures in my head that I couldn't really know on my own. Clairaudience, clairvoyance, and clairsentience is part of our human repertoire of skills and abilities, for those who wish to train up. Less persecuted than in days of olde, and in some ways less developed, tho times are changing.
Doesn't have to be earth-shattering pronouncements of gloom and doom, armies or floods, this reading signs thing. Today, for example, it's a delightful way of enjoying the moment, reveling in the weather that will soon change, watching the light and the subtle shift of the colorings. When you're quiet and listening, gazing and still, you get to do several things simultaneously. BE is a biggie, you get to to simply be. FEEL is the sentient channel, from which we human beings actually derive a lot of very useful information and connection to everything around you, without having to translate it into language and sentences and statements that can be bandied about and trifled with.
When you're in this state of consciousness you can also ask questions, and you can read signs. That's the KNOW part. Asking and receiving/reading go together as a kind of knowing/not knowing dance, or question/answer period with the universe. While doing this with the leaves and the breeze, eloquently glossed by the dragonflies on parade back and forth, back and forth, I noticed the spiders and their webs now visible–––they weren't there before. Sign of the season, and then some.
Spider medicine for Fall. Hence all the fake cobweb and spider stuff available for Halloween. Their web-building skills pre-date ours, obviously. The webs I'm appreciating are not covered in dew like the photo, and they each have a caramel-colored spider in their center. So what's the deal with spiders and webs and fall, and the relationship between the webs and the Web as in interwebs? There's a lot there to parse, not that I'm going to do all that here.
Spiders are the originators of the alphabet, according to indigenous lore, so seeing Spider in these newly created webs immediately gave me the sign to write. I'd been reading about writing, specifically Liz Gilbert's new book, Big Magic, which is technically not released yet. Lucky for me, soul sister and intrepid editor Kylie Bird at Penguin slipped me a copy in a recent care package. Liz Gilbert's topic, "creative living beyond fear" is about writers mostly, and fits right in with Spider medicine and the sign to write and the eloquence of the leaves/breeze conversation going on around me. There are layers of communication going on that ping off each other in ways mere advice or suggestion cannot. Energy I needed from the other web, as if out of nowhere, here now.
To make sure I got into the groove, Raven flew over very pointedly just before I noticed Spider, lecturing loudly from above on reading signs and receiving all that's needed 'out of nowhere.' It's where everything can be found.
Been awhile since I wrote a blog. The breeze is still now. The end.
